Posh v Wolves: Match Preview

20 September 2012

Posh host Wolverhampton Wanderers at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in npower Championship action at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm) with Darren Ferguson's men desperate to end the current losing run.

The Posh boss spoke to the press on Thursday and is confident his side can turn around the poor form and bring an end to the current losing run.

'I went to see Wolves play at Ipswich on Wednesday night for myself and it was a good display from them. They are a big side, a typical Championship side in that respect and they have some good players, but I am confident my team can end this run we are on.

'I want my players to get on the ball and express themselves. Against Burnley we only passed the ball 170 times, normally we are around the 400 mark. I don't want us to just hoof the ball forward. It is obvious that we need to get points on the board sooner rather than later, but we are not panicking.

'For the first time for a long while, Thursday's training session had every player involved. Nobody is on the treatment table and as a manager that is what I want. I need options,' Ferguson said.

Tommy Rowe and Danny Swanson both trained although the former may not be involved due to the lack of match fitness. Swanson has been sidelined with a thigh strain, but will be available for selection.

Meanwhile, fellow midfielder Danny Kearns could be set for a loan spell at another club to get match fitness following an injury layoff. 'I have spoken to Danny and he agrees that he needs to be playing football at the minute. He has had an injury and just needs to get that sharpness back in his game.'

Wolves beat Ipswich Town 2-0 on Wednesday evening, their first away win of the campaign.

'I played at Wolves myself and know that they are a good club with an excellent fanbase. It was an inconsistent time for me when I was there as a player. We had a number of manager's at that time, but there is no doubt the club are a Premier League in all but status,' Ferguson added.
